Our Regressive Progressives

Feb 27, 2016

Leftists like to call themselves “progressives”. They think all their radical social agenda items are a sign of moving forward, of progress. But the truth is just the opposite. They really want to take us backwards. Their vision of the

Bureaucracy, Ideology and the Professions

Sep 13, 2007

In much of the Western world, especially Australia, it does not matter so much which political party is elected into office, since often a deeply imbedded bureaucracy remains, regardless of the ruling party of the day. This thick layer of

God, Evil, Suffering and Justice

Apr 7, 2017

The recent Syrian gas attack has again raised numerous questions. One question I will simply mention here but not deal with is whether in fact Assad was behind it. But that is not my focus here, so we will leave

Trans Activists Transcending Reality

Mar 27, 2017

A few years ago hardly anyone was talking about transgenderism. Today you cannot go through one whole day without hearing about it incessantly. The radical feminist and homosexual lobbies of course laid the foundation for all this by attacking the

Bathroom Wars

Feb 17, 2017

Until recently no one had any good reason to write an article about bathrooms. Why would they have? Sadly however, bathrooms have now become a hot topic, all because of the radical gender bender wars which are raging all around

Some Good News in the Culture Wars

Feb 15, 2017

In an ongoing state of war – and that is what the many moral, social and cultural fights are in fact all about – there will be ebbs and flows, wins and losses, victories and defeats, good news and bad

Free Speech, Fascism, and the Left

Feb 3, 2017

Free speech is regarded as being inimical to fascism, and rightly so. And leftists routinely claim that they are the enemies of fascism and the champions of free speech. But as we see over and over again of late, it

Leftists Politicising Our Schools

Dec 19, 2016

That the Australian education system is a hotbed of radical leftist political ideology and propaganda should surprise no one. This of course has been happening for decades now and I have been documenting this for decades now.

For example, almost

Terrific News in the Culture Wars

Dec 6, 2016

An early Christmas present has just come our way, and it is worth publicising and celebrating. In the culture wars you win some and lose some. It seems like we are losing more often than winning. Thus it is fantastic

Christianity Without Christ

Dec 4, 2016

We have gotten to a pretty bizarre place when you have Christians effectively disowning Christ. Yet increasingly we find some folks who seek to do just that: run with a Christianity without Christ. One might as well speak about Marxism

More on the Trump Win/Clinton Loss

Nov 10, 2016

Yesterday I posted my first piece on the historic election victory of Donald Trump. In it I said that this election was all about who was disliked the most. People were not so much voting for someone as against someone

CINOs and RINOs are Both Selling Us Out

Oct 18, 2016

In my books they are pretty much the same: Christians In Name Only and Republicans In Name Only. While there are many genuine Christians who reluctantly and unenthusiastically will vote for Trump because Clinton is so bad, there are plenty

More Ugly Leftist Hypocrisy

Aug 25, 2016

It is getting to the point where if I am asked to define what leftism is all about, I simply offer the word hypocrisy. The two seem to go together so often, that they may be twins separated at birth.

Are You Hungry – For God?

Jul 11, 2016

Many believers have the mistaken notion that the Christian life is something we take no part in – it is all God’s work. “Let go and let God” is a popular expression used here. It is as if the Christian
